BW Week #1: Yeah, yeah, Organs are my thing!

Okay I missed one day! I'm sure you all can forgive me. The reason this time had nothing to do with my sudden shorten in stock! Actually I've got a few images that I want to share.

I've decided to present this one a tad bid different and more in line with my wedding photography style. I met this chap (forgot to get his name) just before the ceremony started and he pointed out that he plays different kinds of organs as a profession. Church organs unlike most pianos are not all the same. They are designed as part of the church and there look and work differently. For each church you have to learn how the organ works. It's really amazing, that means you have to almost get a qualification for the different churches you play in.

Anyway I have two more shots from this same event that I want to share.

Welcome to the start of Black and White Week!

This looks like being an interesting week. Love the light on the organ and organist.

An interesting picture, not least because of the internal windows that seem almost to be protecting the organist from something or other. I like the mono too.
love the window...extrmely caracteistic shot!
